Does the good reputation hold up or not? Let’s find out!

A Philips Hue light can come in pretty handy when trying to light up a path to a garage, patio or driveway. This is why I love Philips Hue outdoor lighting because it is very convenient because you don't need high voltage to run the lights — just power. You also don't need to worry about the bulbs blowing out — they are built to last for several lifetimes.
Hue lights can be controlled via the Philips Hue app or via voice control via the Amazon Echo or a smartphone via Apple's Homekit.
Hue outdoor lights can also work with Nest, Honeywell, TP-Link and Wink smart lighting systems. They are also very energy-efficient and are good for the environment as well. This is why Hue outdoor lighting are probably one of the best smart lighting products on the market, in my opinion.
I'll also note that they are rugged and should stand up to the weather. The ones you'll find in this guide can last up to 25, 000 hours and are made with weatherproof weather-resistant plastic.
I like that this kit comes with a mounting bracket as well. While you can mount the bulbs to anything, you don't have to. The mounting bracket makes it easy to create colorful lighting all around the house.
Finally with any Philips Hue light bulb, you can connect it to other Hue lights or other connected lights that have a Hue Bridge in them. So you can take advantage of the Philips Hue hub as well and connect them all up.
Last, you can take advantage of the Philips Hue ecosystem and control it with any Amazon Echo or Google Home device.
